Prior to purchasing any storage shed,
prebuilt garage or horse barn,
we recommend that you check with your local government's
building/code enforcement office. Building code officials,
in addition to supplying the permit (for a fee that varies
with the municipality), will also advise on "setback"
requirements, which will determine where the shed can be placed
in relation to front, side and rear property lines. Additionally,
there may be any number of restrictions or requirements a
property owner must meet depending on location, how your property
is classified (i.e. residential, farm, etc.) and whether a
shed (or barn) is designated as a "permanent" or
"temporary" structure based on the size of the building
or how it is constructed. Residents of subdivisions also should
check any subdivision regulations concerning detached buildings.
Since all municipalities have differing regulations and requirements,
we are unable to give advice on exactly what may be required
of you. Taking care of these issues is the responsibility
of the property owner. We are often asked to supply building
specs, etc. as part of the permit process and we are happy
to assist whenever possible.
Ultimately, it is your responsibility to check with all municipal
agencies and obtain all necessary permits and inspections.
